Laser skin rejuvenation is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the U.S. It is a technique utilizing highly amplified light to penetrate through the skin to stimulate collagen formation. The subcutaneous skin cells absorb the light which in turn forces them to produce collagen.

It is one of the most effective hair removal laser treatments available.

There's no single test to confirm a diagnosis of chronic fatigue syndrome. Because the symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome can mimic so many other health problems, you may need patience while waiting for a diagnosis.
Your doctor must rule out a number of other illnesses before diagnosing chronic fatigue syndrome. These may include:
Sleep disorders: Chronic fatigue can be caused by sleep disorders. A sleep study can determine if your rest is being disturbed by disorders such as obstructive sleep apnea, restless legs syndrome or insomnia.
Medical problems: Fatigue is a common symptom in several medical conditions, such as anemia, diabetes and under active thyroid (hypothyroidism). Lab tests can check your blood for evidence of some of the top suspects.
Mental health issues: Fatigue is also a symptom of a variety of mental health problems, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. A counselor can help determine if one of these problems is causing your fatigue.
